Guys and Dolls, by Frank Loesser
I Loved It a Bushel and a Peck
Sunday, July 29, 2018
4.5
Guys and Dolls is the first show I have seen in a few years at ACT1 as an audience member, and I was thoroughly impressed. The entire cast is great, displaying some impressive choreography for a local show, but the main cast in particular was wonderful. Jeremy Choate plays a stoic Sky Masterson, and he has wonderful chemistry with Jennifer Hutcheson as Sarah Brown. His performance as Masterson also contrasts nicely with the lighter Nathan Detroit as played by Mike Glatzer. Genevieve Leopold as Adelaide steals just about every scene she is in. And without going down the whole (lengthy) cast list, I will just give a shout-out to the pitch-perfect Nicely-Nicely Johnson played by Mark Krohn.

The live orchestration was excellent, the costumes were on-point, and the set was deceptively simple in its use of nicely-illustrated exchangeable backdrops. The effect was to provide a variety of locales on an otherwise small stage, and the transitions between them were seamless.

An altogether excellent show, and one that I will be actively recommending to others.
